More about the product

The SkyWatcher 80/400 telescope on EQ1 mount has a compact size, easy to use, and provide a nice picture. With EQ1 mount the objects can be find more precisely and can be easily followed by manual fine-tuning, much better than the AZ3 mount model. The spirit of the telescope, the lenses already has the construction of larger refractors. The Fraunhofer type air gap achromatic system is very lightweight so it is very suitable for observing faint deep-sky objects, like the Andromeda Galaxy, the Pleiades or the Orion Nebula. All glass-air surfaces of the optic have fully multi coatings to ensure maximum image contrast and light transmission.

In addition to the large-scale celestial objects, it also shows the Moon, and the planets. The two accessories with Barium Eyepiece allow you to achieve two magnifications (20x and 111x), but with standard 31.7mm focuser, you can use any standard eyepiece and benefit from the full magnification range. You can easily point to any object in the sky with the 1x magnification Red dot finderscope (Starpointer). We can double the magnification with the Barlow-lens, but as the telescope highest magnification is about 120x, we do not recommend to combine the Barlow and the 3.6 mm Barium eyepiece.

Summary

Első igazi csillagászati távcsövem. Ideális kezdőtávcső, csak ajánlani tudom. Döbbenetes részletességgel mutatja a holdat, halmazokat. Planetary okulárral együtt rendeltem okulárakcióval. Már négy hónapja használom, tökéletesen elégedett vagyok vele. A következő lépés egy nagyobb mechanika lesz alá. Megérdemli ez a cső.
